Online Registration will close Thursday 6th June. If you would like to take part you can attend on the day from 4pm or call the Fundraising Office on 01726 66868 (opt 3).


We would like to invite you and your family and friends, to join us at the idyllic sandy Cornish cove of Polkerris, for our moving and supportive remembrance event.

A gerbera flower carries individual messages of memory which will be placed on a specially made lotus flower shaped raft. With gentle background music and some words of comfort, we stand together to watch as the raft is rowed away. (Weather and sea conditions permitting.)

To take part and make a donation to this event, please click on the red “Take Part at Polkerris” button on this page.  We would encourage you to register with us in advance, so that if you are planning to join us on the evening we will ensure we have enough flowers for everyone.

If you are not able to join us, but would like to add your gerbera and message to the raft, please click on the red “Take Part at Polkerris” button and we will ensure your flower is included.

Access to Polkerris Beach is available all day.  There is a pay and display car park a short walk from the beach up the hill

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.
